HEIRLOOM TOMATO PLANTS

Presenting Heirloom Tomato Plants
          Heirloom tomatoes are plants whose seeds have been handed down through families and friends for many generations.  They have
survived the test of time to bring back that old fashioned great tomato taste.  All of the tomato plants we offer have been organically grown
and they come from seeds which have not been artificially hybridized or genetically engineered.  Unlike hybrids, heirlooms are open-pollinated
and thus can reproduce true to form year after year.  By growing heirloom vegetable plants, we can all help to maintain the diversity of our
food crop for future generations.
         The taste of heirloom tomatoes is far superior, and they come in all shapes and sizes as well as a rainbow of colours, making these tomatoes
not only tasty but attractive and fun to grow.  We are able to offer you a wide selection from bite sized cherry tomatoes to big, juicy beefsteak tomatoes,
as well as sauce and canning varieties, and ones for growing in small spaces or containers.

We hope you enjoy some of the wonderful new varieties of organic Heirloom tomato plants.
